    You actually don't need NFC on to use Samsung pay, I have it off and I use Samsung Pay all the time
    SP turns it in when you go to use it and off when you don't.

    Not sure about NFC but this command inside of an ADB shell will remove the alarm clock.
    $ adb shell settings put secure icon_blacklist alarm_clock

    To remove the blacklist:
    $ adb shell settings delete secure icon_blacklist

    Below is a mapping of the icon names to their Settings description:

    Name | Settings Description
    cast | Cast
    hotspot | Hotspot
    bluetooth | Bluetooth
    zen | Do not disturb
    alarm_clock | Alarm
    managed_profile | Work profile
    wifi | Wi-Fi
    ethernet Ehternet
    mobile Cellular Data
    airplane Airplane Mode

    Theoretically, if you wanted to remove all of the icons:
    $ adb shell settings get secure icon_blacklist mobile,airplane,managed_profile,zen,cast,wifi,alarm_clock,hotspot,bluetooth

    Curious So I turned on NFC. No icon for me either... Using Nova launcher on US unlocked S8. I know it was visible when I set the phone up. Wierd

    Oh. I should have mentioned I am using Action Launcher but I'm not aware of any setting that lets me change the NFC icon visibility.

    None of the unlocked models show the NFC icon on the status bar. That was the case for the S7E too.

    I never turn on my NFC and I have never had a problem pairing any Bluetooth devices, and I have about 5 right now paired to the phone, so am I missing something here?

    About Android Pay yes, that's a most, but that's why Samsung Pay is so good, obviously if you have a participant bank and card then it makes no sense to use Android Pay over Samsung Pay because SP will work wherever Android Pay works on those NFC tap and pay terminals in addition to the rest (most of them really) of regular magnetic stripe readers. It even turns NFC on temporarily when needed if it turns off, great little feature. I can't forget to mention the Samsung Rewards program and the new deals you can get from tons of merchants online and in Stores.
    Nfc of not needed to pair devices it's just cool to do so.
    I tried Samsung pay and didn't like it. I have had several issues with it. I am used to Android pay and prefer it. Plus it has all my rewards and loyalty cards in there already from previous phones.

    Android includes the ability to show/hide icons such as NFC and alarms, it's called System UI Tuner. However, Samsung chooses not to allow its users to benefit from this feature. System UI Tuner also allows folks to have the battery % embedded inside the battery icon, so you get the best of both worlds.
    I miss it so much from my one plus 3
